ISU Student Survey Request: Google Lunar X-prize

Reader note: “I’m currently at ISU SSP in Barcelona working as a TA with the team project focused on the Google Lunar X-prize.  In this project, the intent is not to design yet another competitive team, but to take all of the work from the various teams and build a cohesive program with wider ranging impacts and influence across the globe. One the the activities that the student team is pursuing is an online survey to try to get a market feel for the more/most important stakeholders which the teams and the foundation can then use to focus the efforts.

The students would really like to have a large audience in the response (we are shooting for about 3,000 responses total for this survey). The intro to the survey is as follows.  The turn around needed for this is in the next 4-5 days, so anything that you can do would be most appreciated.”

The Google Lunar X-Prize (GLXP) has made headlines in the space community. This innovative competition invites private organizations from around the world to land on the Moon. It will set a precedent for the future of space exploration and transform the way space activities are conducted.

As part of a team project of the 2008 Space Studies Program of the International Space University (, we are investigating the stakeholders of the GLXP who are likely to benefit from this competition.

Our report will be completed at the end of August 2008. Please contact us if you are interested in obtaining a copy of the Executive Summary or the Final Report. Thank you in advance for your kind cooperation. If you have any questions, please contact the ISU Google Lunar X-Prize Project Team at
